Rita’s Mom’s Passing

As you may or may not know – we were sorry to hear Rita Garner’s Mom passed away on Saturday morning.

If you are interested in attending, there will be visitation on Tuesday April 23rd at Elliot Sons Funeral Home on Lumpkin Rd from 6 to 8 pm.

There will also be a graveside service on Wednesday 24 April at Hillcrest Memorial Park (on Dean’s Bridge Rd) at 2pm.

Road Rally Anyone?

David & Ellie Brock want to put on another of their fabulous Road Rallies, but would like to get at least 5 cars (and hopefully a lot more) to do the event.

These are fun rallies, just follow the somewhat cryptic instructions that lead you around local streets where you have to take several required pictures. The winner is the one who finishes closest to the mileage that the Brocks took to travel the route. We have 3 proposed dates, April 20, September 21 and October 19.

If you are interested doing a rally, please comment below with which date, or dates, you can do it on.

They need at least a couple months to something like this up, so we will need an answer on the April 20th date in the next couple of weeks.

Extra Credit III

For all those times you get that question you can knock out of the park. What color was George Washington’s white horse? When does Oktoberfest start? What is the best lightweight practical 2 seater roadster? You almost can’t miss.

You have until Monday 11/5/18 midnight to get this Miata related T-shirt from Blipshift.

They also have a couple dozen other car related T-shirts during this weekend’s The Autonum Sale if you are interested.

More Mitsuoka Madness

From the fine folks who brought you the Himiko, a British Jaguar Mark 2s look alike made from a Miata, comes something a bit more ‘Murican, the Rock Star, a C2 Corvette Stingray.

If the link for the Rock Star seems like it is taking too long to load (about 90 secs for me) you can read more about it on Jalopnik here.

Wanted: One Webmaster

Inquire Within

On November 1, 2018, I will be letting go of the reins of the Club web presence that I have held since early in 1997. I have gone from hand-coding html hosted for free on something called Geocities to a WordPress blog hosted on GoDaddy with our very own domain name, MastersMiataClub.com. It has been fun, but after 21 years it has worn out it’s welcome. Maintaining the site itself is not hard, but wrangling content has become a real challenge.

Keeping it like it is for the hundred something dollars a year, going to just Facebook for free, an online newsletter program or just using an email list, anyway we go, there needs to be someone to keep it updated. This could be you, email me at brian.the.red@gmail.com

I will certainly be available to help anyone get started with the current system or help transition to something else.
